La Rosiere (Espace San Bernardo) Information

La Rosiere is a friendly south-facing resort built in an attractive chalet style in keeping with local architecture. La Rosiere is linked with La Thuile in Italy, it’s the only Savoyard resort to offer an international ski area of 160km of marked pisted runs (Espace San Bernardo). La Rosiere is a very family-oriented purpose-designed resort with new additions being made every year, such as a new for winter 17/18 fun track more than 1km long dedicated to the the mascot of Espace San-Bernardo. 

La Rosiere sits high on the sunny slopes above Bourg St Maurice, facing Les Arcs across the Tarentaise Valley. La Rosiere is part of the commune of Montvalezan, comprising around 40 hamlets. The commune’s 14 chapels are the jewels in the crown of its rich heritage. Today the resort revolves around two autonomous hubs: the centre of the resort and Les Eucherts village, each with its own shops, high-speed chairlift and ski-lesson meeting points, linked via a pathway through the forest.

La Rosiere vs Les Eucherts

The original village of La Rosiere turned 50 in 2011 but the most recent development has been in Les Eucherts, highlighted by high-calibre slope-side accommodation. Les Eucherts is a newly developed area of La Rosiere which sits to the East of the main village. The development of Les Eucherts incorporates some excellent shops and restaurants, the tourist office, an ice rink and bowling complex and a state-of-the-art nursery as well as ski-school facilities, all only a few metres apart. It’s all extremely family friendly so it’s no surprise that the village has the highest official ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ award.

No need to take the car if you want to get from the centre of La Rosiere to Les Eucherts. Just take a short walk through the forest! The forest footpath is around one kilometre long and floodlit at night. It’s the perfect place for a stroll, whatever time of the day or night.

Peak Retreats offers a range of La Rosiere accommodation options. All of La Rosiere's ski apartments have been hand-picked and are of a very high standard (3 & 4*), providing the ideal base for a La Rosiere ski holiday. You can find residences Cimes Blanches, Le Refuge and Les Balcons plus Hotel Accroche Coeur in Les Eucherts and residences Lodge Hemera and Chalets des Marmottons in La Rosiere centre.

History

An important trans-Alpine route linking Savoie to the Aosta Valley, the Roman road through the Petit Saint Bernard Pass was built in the late 1800s. Because of its strategic cross-border position, the Petit Saint Bernard Pass and the mountains surrounding it have been the setting for many events and battles, including the annexation of Savoy by France in 1860, and the attacks by the Italian army in 1940. The Espace San Bernardo still shows the scars of its past battles, and to this day symbolically links France, Italy and Europe via its slopes.
